An increasing number of communities are creating supportive housing for a range of populations and in response to the Olmstead Decision are exploring new housing models that promote unit integration. Integrating supportive housing into your community is a blending of supportive housing within developments that targeted that may also include affordable and market rate units not restricted exclusively to supportive housing populations.
CSH developed the Supportive Housing – Integrated Models Matrix to help educate the development community on several approaches to developing and operating integrated housing that includes supportive housing. Supportive housing can be integrated in a variety of ways, examples including units within a single-site development, dispersed in an apartment or condominium building, or scattered-site apartments across a community.
To compliment the Supportive Housing Integrated Model Matrix, CSH also created new and adapted existing Project Profiles that showcase developments from across the country. The case studies, organized by integrated model, go deeper into integration strategies, service delivery partnerships, and key innovations that make the sites successful at serving a variety of housing needs.
